A customized trip with Rolf

My wife and I could not have been happier with our decision to select Rolf as our tour guide of the Reijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum. It was the highlight of our trip to the Baltic cities on a cruise. As an Art Historian, Rolf provided us with wonderful background information about the painters and selected pieces of their art. The tour of the paintings selected by Rolf, of Rembrandt and Ver Meer was perfect, a lot better than trying to appreciate all of the paintings on display. The personal tour, although more costly than a group tour, is well worth it.

Oh La La! Parisian Pastry Tour in Le Marais

We loved our day with Christophe! The pastry tour was not only delicious but educational. Christophe was innovative when it began to pour outside and he was quick to come up with a plan B. It felt as tho we were with a friend all day catching up on life! I would Highly recemend picking one of Christophe’s many tour options.

Lisbon's Nostalgic Tram 28 & City Walk

My husband and I had a tour of Lisbon with Luis. He was fun and very knowledgeable about present and past history. The story of Lisbon came alive with his stories. He is a great guide and anyone would be fortunate to have him. We now have had two experiences with Withlocals
